'Relevant clue' found in Madeleine McCann reservoir searches
Teams probing the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have reportedly found a “relevant clue” during a three-day search of a reservoir. Officers were working with shovels at the Barragem do Arade in Portugal on Thursday, digging holes around 30 miles from where Madeleine went missing in 2007. Materials were reportedly collected and sent to Germany for testing, but could take weeks to be analysed. Portuguese newspaper Correio da Manha reported that police found the “relevant clue” while digging. Several items were removed from the site, reportedly including a bra strap, pieces of clothing and plastic items. The fresh searches were carried out at the request of German investigators who believe their prime suspect, convicted sex offender Christian Brueckner, 45, kidnapped and murdered the little girl.
